In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov shares with you a simple and universal chess opening for Black against 1.e4. It is called the Hungarian Defense from the Italian Game, which happens after the following moves: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Be7.

It is played as a quiet response to the aggressive 3.Bc4. The opening is seldom seen in modern days, but it gives a solid position for Black. Black can always play a simple setup of playing Nf6, d6, and 0-0.

And because most of your opponents are unaware of it, it gives you an edge to outplay them in the opening. Best of all, the most played moves by White loses in just 6 moves!
